Because Ethiopia is close to the Equator the sun rises at around 00:30 Ethiopian time and sets at around 12:45 in the evening (6:45 western equivalent) all year round. Ethiopia is 3 hours ahead of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). The years run in a four year cycle bearing the names of the Gospels with the year of John or Yohannes (Amharic) is being the leap year.
